Now...For Something Different!

It's a new Kim Hughes set (well, new to me) called "The Birds and the Bees"! Yippee! I just adore these little love birds. They are so cute! I couldn't wait to ink them up and color! I actually used the two Prismacolor Pencils that I own to color in this image and I really like how it turned out. I still feel that they are little pricey for what I can do with Crayolas but my collection will slowly grow! :) I used more of my Candy Land dsp on this card and combined it with some Riding Hood Red and Chocolate card stock as well as my Pink Pirouette ribbon. I used the 1 3/4" circle punch and layered it on a scalloped circle that I cut with my nestabillities! The sentiment was stamped on some more dsp and then layered on Riding Hood Red and Chocolate Chip card stock. To finish the card, I added 3 vintage brads to the upper left hand corner!

Well guess what...today is really special because today you get to see TWO cards in one post! Woohoo! It's a pretty good day huh? :)I made this card using another stamp from my new Kim Hughes' set called "The Birds and the Bees". I went for the simple look with these two cards. In fact, this card only has two layers! That might be a record for me! I again colored in the bubble "Love" sentiment with my red Prismacolor pencil. I layered on some Very Vanilla card stock and some more Candy Lane dsp. It is hard to see in the picture but I also added some score lines with my ScorPal (a Christmas gift) right above the very vanilla panel. I then embellished it with some Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon and 3 pearls from the Pretties Kit.

Well, there ya go! Two cards for you to enjoy and two cards for me to clear off my desk! Haha!

Before I go, I need to mention that you MUST stop by tomorrow because we are going to be celebrating the first anniversary of Taylor's Cupcake Challenges! Let me just mention that there will be lots of prizes involved! :D I can't give any details yet but I can tell you that it will be amazing!

Well, until then, have a great evening!
